New Webinar Series!
It's time to talk about Race, Equity, and Inclusion in out-of-school time programs. Are you ready to do this work? All students, families, program staff, and members of the community deserve an equitable experience. For our students to feel safe, we need to create an atmosphere that allows all students to be themselves while knowing that their teachers are actively working to dismantle racism in their learning communities.
This webinar series targets educators at all levels of their equity journey.
ION is looking for a diverse group of reviewers and is focused on recruiting strong representation of individuals with experience or connection to youth development. Reviewer applications will be accepted until December 10, 2021.
